Speaking to presspersons on the sidelines of Youth to Business Forum 2010 organised by the AIESEC Manipal University here on Saturday, he said the passion within us should be ignited and allowed to grow. “Don’t do something which you do not understand.”

Stating that entrepreneurs are born, he said “for me, business is like a game. If you lose, you can become better players in future.”

He said multiple mentors add more dimensions and solutions to the problems in business.

Adding value to a customer should be the priority of an entrepreneur.
Ramesh said no business plans are perfect. One need to evolve as one goes. Gut feel will impact most decision one makes as an entrepreneur.
